Doing this 365 Days of Designer Inspired DIY tutorials has certainly expanded my knowledge of designers! 🙂 Probably not the best thing when on a budget 😛 This elegant but simple choker would set me back a neat USD160!
Luckily there’s always DIY 🙂
To rock this necklace, you’ll need:
– 60 cm of thick cord, at least 1 cm in width- leather if you can get it but that’s on the rarer side, so thick rope would work too
– Magnetic clasp which can be glued on (Always check that the cord can fit in!)
– what’s soon becoming our best friend in this blogging series, E6000- you can see I love it so much I upgraded to the big bottle 😛
Mark out the middle of the bracelet. Knot the cord and when tightening the knot, position it over the centre of the bracelet.
Note: if you are using a soft rope, the knot will not stay in place as it would with a harder material (it would be possible to completely close the knot and form a very small knot, so you might want to glue the big knot in place)
Apply glue to the ends of the cord, press on the magnetic clasp and leave to dry.
One final look at the 2 pieces, side-by-side, before I go (yes, I’m patting my own head and marvelling at my cleverness here :P) Can you tell which is which? 🙂
